Details about today's
This will likely be the last of the basil this season. Enjoy with Turnip Rock's tomatoes and some fresh mozzarella!
Red beets that are loose in the bottom of the box.
Another beautiful and crunchy bunch.
The cukes are starting to slow down, but we still have several for the box this week.
This variety is called Porcelain and is slightly spicy raw but mellows nicely with cooked.
A nice bag of green beans to round out a summery box.
The small, pointy green pepper in your box.
The skins have started to dry down on the onions.
These are all sweet peppers--bell and pointed Italian. The red or red/green pointed pepper--Carmen--is one of our favorites. It's a reliable producer and is always one of the sweetest! The gold pointed pepper--Escamillo--is the cousin of Carmen and equally as delicious. There is also a bell pepper or two. The peppers look great right now, so we expect to have a couple more weeks of these delicious beauties.
A variety called Red-Gold for its red skin and gold flesh. Slightly sweet and great roasted, mashed, cut into fries, and brings a unique look to potato salad.
Radishes OR Summer Squash or Zucchini
The zucchini and squash are coming to an end (sad for some, a relief for others). Our goal was to push the plants through to the end of the month, but we won't make it to next week (9 weeks of squash and zucchini is still pretty darn good). In fact, we didn't even have enough for everyone, so if you didn't get squash or zucchini, you have radishes instead.
Turnip Rock Farm Tomatoes
Although we are unable to harvest our own, our neighbors who grow certified organic vegetables had more than they needed this week and were willing to share with our farm members.
Either red flesh or yellow flesh--both have been great. This really is the last one. The vines got mowed down after harvest on Monday.
